We recently brought some incredible Masters-Level interns onto our team, and we want YOU to get to know them in our interview-style blog series! Introducing, Danielle Atkinson!
 
1. What draws you to the counseling field?  Why do you want to become a therapist?
From Middle School and beyond, I was the friend everyone turned to when they wanted to be heard. I love people and hearing their stories. I definitely feel God’s hand leading me to counseling and I could not be more excited about it!
2. HAVE YOU BEEN THROUGH COUNSELING YOURSELF?  WHAT WAS THAT EXPERIENCE LIKE FOR YOU?
I had the opportunity to meet with a few counselors over the years. It was always a very positive experience. I was able to work through whatever issue I was experiencing and my life wouldn’t be the same without it. The tools I learned from each counselor still help me continue to grow today.
3. WHAT WOULD YOU TELL SOMEONE WHO is CONSIDERING COUNSELING?

Try it out! There’s no better feeling than knowing you are not alone in the struggles life throws at all of us.

4. WHAT ARE YOUR SPECIALTIES?

I love all people! I enjoy working with anyone who has a story to tell and is ready to move towards healing. My specialities include stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, life transitions, self esteem issues, social skill building, relationship improvement, and individual and couples counseling.

5. what is one random or fun fact about you?

My first and last name have the same amount of letters…Oh and one time I swam with sharks!

We are so excited for Danielle to join our team here at Cornerstone (and we’re shark-free!). Want to learn more? You can read her full bio and background HERE. If you’d like to schedule with Danielle or any other of our new interns, (who are all priced at an affordable rate of $55 per session), you can reach our team at (303) 902-3068 or via email at [email protected] We look forward to hearing from you!
